The Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was adopted on July 9, 1868, as one of the Reconstruction Amendments. All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws. https://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/amendmentxiv Does not a State of war between Sovereigns exist if I refuse to be Subject to United States? What if I claim that my Birth Right is superior to the claim of United States? The14th Amendment was ratified after the War Between the States - and as Lysander Spooner so aptly notes: The Constitution has no inherent authority or obligation. It has no authority or obligation at all, unless as a contract between man and man. And it does not so much as even purport to be a contract between persons now existing. It purports, at most, to be only a contract between persons living eighty years ago. And it can be supposed to have been a contract then only between persons who had already come to years of discretion, so as to be competent to make reasonable and obligatory contracts. Furthermore, we know, historically, that only a small portion even of the people then existing were consulted on the subject, or asked, or permitted to express either their consent or dissent in any formal manner. Those persons, if any, who did give their consent formally, are all dead now. Most of them have been dead forty, fifty, sixty, or seventy years. And the constitution, so far as it was their contract, died with them. They had no natural power or right to make it obligatory upon their children. It is not only plainly impossible, in the nature of things, that they could bind their posterity, but they did not even attempt to bind them. That is to say, the instrument does not purport to be an agreement between any body but “the people” then existing; nor does it, either expressly or impliedly, assert any right, power, or disposition, on their part, to bind anybody but themselves. Let us see. Its language is: “We, the people of the United States (that is, the people then existing in the United States), in order to form a more perfect union, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” http://praxeology.net/LS-NT-6.htm When Congress once again resumes it's responsibilities - in regards to MONEY - and abolishes the Federal Reserve and FIAT money - then I shall re-consider being subject to United States. U.S. Constitution - Article 1 Section 10 No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of Nobility. https://www.usconstitution.net/xconst_A1ec10.html Read in conjunction with the Ninth and Tenth Amendments, and the obligation-of-contracts clause (Art. I, sec. 10, cl. 1), we can identify five monetary policies that are constitutionally requisite in the United States: The basic unit is the dollar, a silver coin containing 371.25 grains of pure silver. Only gold or silver coins, or currency backed by the same, are legal tender. No state may issue coins or currency. No one may counterfeit U.S-government-issued coins or currency. Fiat money is forbidden. https://deanclancy.com/the-constitutions-seven-money-clauses/ Until then - United States is a rogue and foreign government which has usurped the original Founders intent and contract. Thus any contractual obligation or legal proceedings are null and void. There exists within United States a subversive and dangerous foreign enemy which has subverted the Constitution and allowed a private Central Bank - the Federal Reserve - to usurp Congress and grant the Federal Reserve the power to control and create money. When simple possession of money ceases to be evidence of debt and created out of thin air - then I may choose to contract with United States. OR - NOT.
